Calgary region has rich history and bright future on film
You’re watching a movie or TV show when something catches your eye.
“I know that place!” you exclaim, as a character enters a pizza place on a city street, or rides a horse through a wheat field with a majestic mountain backdrop.
Calgary and its surrounding areas are becoming increasingly popular as filming locations for major movie and television productions – making famous places that Calgarians know well.
“We have 100 years of history here,” said Luke Azevedo, Calgary film commissioner and CEO of the Calgary Film Centre. “We’re one of the oldest locations outside of Hollywood for production.”
